UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN-DEARBORN AGAIN RANKS IN TOP 25 PERCENT IN U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT

 UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN-DEARBORN AGAIN RANKS IN TOP 25 PERCENT
 IN U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
 DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Talk about best in class!
 When the University of Michigan-Dearborn chose "Best in Class" to mean "the best institution of its kind" as part of its first campus-wide $24 million fund-raising effort, it wasn't expecting verification from U.S. News & World Report.
 For the second year in a row, UM-Dearborn has ranked among the best of Midwest Regional Universities in the annual ranking by U.S. News & World Report, according to a story which will appear in its Sept. 21 issue. The rankings are compiled by Robert Morse, senior editor at U.S. News.
 For the first time, U.S. News ranked all institutions. That accounts for the larger pool of 131 as compared to last year's pool of 25, which ranked UM-D as No. 15, or, upper "quartile" as Morse says.
 Explained another way, it's even better than that.
 "That means we've moved up from being in the top 60 percent (based on 25 ranked), to being in the top 22 percent (based on 131 ranked) -- that's a dramatic jump in terms of percentage," said Michael Lachance, professor of mathematics at UM-D. "Congratulations to us!"
 "That's just terrific news," said Interim Chancellor Bernard Klein when told of the report.
 The magazine annually ranks U.S. colleges and universities. The rankings are compiled based on five key components, including:
 -- academic reputation
 -- student selectivity
 -- faculty resources
 -- financial resources
 -- student retention
 U.S. News & World Report certainly seems to agree with UM-D's "Best in Class" title.
